Door Center Inc.: Lear all the benefits of the new MyQ Internet garage door openers from LiftMaster. In this video you will find all the benefits of the Liftmaster Jackshaft opener model 8500 Elite Series

Mark Forder: Excellent review of the product

Jon Kensy: So glad to see this on Geek Beat! I am actually a geek and avid car enthusiast and just got done building my garage up (which has racedeck flooring, dual 27" monitors on a core i5 4670k desktop, and 120" workbench/toolbox with LED lighting lol...). I am thinking of getting this opener but wanted to know if theres anything needed to do if putting it on a conventional tension spring garage door vs what is seen in the video here. Thanks guys!

David M: I just had this garage door opener installed, and I couldn't be happier. Best money I ever spent! I recommend it. Even my installer was impressed by its compactness and ease of installation. 

RICHARD NEEDHAM: Great demonstration! They'll probably sell thousands more if all the accessories were included in the base price. 

Michael Coleman: buy me one please

Cali Lewis: Here's the difference between a regular garage door opener and a top of the line model. http://youtu.be/r7kPwW_kZSY http://geekbeat.tv/review-liftmaster-8500-elite-series-jackshaft-garage-door-opener/ #garagedoor #LiftMaster

Razor2048: It seems really cool, bot the android and iOS control, does it offer a bypass function, for example suppose the servers were to go down, will it allow you to use a direct connection, or use something like dyndns in order to deal with dynamic IP's so that the device can be used if the servers were to ever go down?

Plano Overhead Garage Door: We truly enjoyed installing these Lifmtsater 8500 Jackshaft openers! Thanks again to John from GeekBeat, we hope you enjoy the products! http://www.planooverhead.com/garage-door-openers/

Christopher C: I just bought and installed this because of this video. Favorite connected device I have bought for my home so far! More connected home videos please.

Melvin Farris: Installed this about a month ago. I have installed chain drive and screw drive garage door openers in the past. By far this was the easiest door opener I have ever installed. The only issue I had was figuring out where to locate the cable tension sensor without it being in the way of the door as it lifts. (Has to be mounted very high up) After that everything went quickly. Great door opener and cannot recommend this opener enough.

Matt Vessey: Does this opener require a time to break in? I installed one and it jerks as it's going down the last 12 inches before it closes. A garage repair guy said it just needs to break in. It runs very smooth except for the end when it closes.

Jim Bob: More garage videos

Jake Andersonm: Jeez John Pozadzidea, you must be pretty darn wealthy. You live in the Dallas Fort Worth area of Texas AND you get to show off this cool geeky stuff likely at no cost to you? Wow. I guess the grass really is greener on the other side. Love your show tho!! Keep it up!!!!

James Swope: Hey +Tommy Lindsey, this is really cool! 

patrick bear: starting to remind me of This Old House--not as interested in your garage remodel as GeekBeat. 

Daniel Romero: Great Demo! Thanks for making it. 

KAM1138a: I had a direct drive opener (two actually) and while I loved it, one of them failed 3 times and the other twice. I've had to abandon them. However, it was a much more finicky and less robust design. The model I had mounted in the center of the shaft and was a total pain. This model looks much better, and I always wondered why they didn't just put a drive on the end like this one.

tgfunky: one thing to note, if you have the battery back up and you're using the adapter for homelink, if there is a power outage you're car WON'T open the door,you'll still need the remotes.

Nigel Burn: I thought this was a really good demonstration and we are lucky you built your garage and shared your journey. People have commented that your selling out which is so untrue as the solar panel installation cost you a small fortune I hope people read this and understand they are lucky to have seen all this tech which I might add you don't see on other tech sites but is of great interest to so many. Thank you John for sharing and I can't wait for more welding as well as tech in the near future, great job John someone has to do it 😆
